Although this concept is highly growing and accepted among the marketers, still it is undefined and requires special attention from everyone who is involved in any form of advertisement. So far we think that Digital Marketing involves only search engine optimisation (SEO), banner advertising and pay per click. Still, we are far from it, as this is a narrow definition. Digital Marketing also includes fax broadcast, RSS, e-mail, voice broadcast, blogging, video streams, podcasting, wireless text messaging and instant messaging. Digital Marketing has emerged as the wider scope and is providing an opportunity for everyone whether students, professionals or advertising agencies.
Clearing the concept, Digital Marketing does not include marketing through TV, radio, print and billboard as they are the different mediums and does not include instant report and feedback. The entire process includes visibility, bringing targeted traffic, engagement, lead generation, measurement and retention. This entire process concentrates on promotion, advertising, creating utility, branding and value proposition, etc. This form of advertising mainly uses laptops, palmtops, tablets, mobile phones, etc.
